Boy meets girl. Boy marries girl. Girl gives boy a kidney. Boy leaves girl and -- surprise, surprise -- girl wants kidney back.
That's the story one U.K. woman recently shared with newspaper the Sunday People, explaining how she donated the vital organ to her dying husband, only to have him leave her once he recovered.
Samantha Lamb, a 41-year-old mother of one, underwent the kidney transplant operation for her husband, Andy, back in October 2009. She even lost weight to prepare for the surgery, which was documented by the BBC.
But a few years after the life-saving procedure, Samantha learned that Andy was leaving her -- and now she says she wants the kidney back. (The angry wife told the paper she believes her husband cheated on her, which Andy vehemently denies.)
"I can't believe he now has a second chance to live to see his grandchildren grow up," Lamb told the paper. "I would definitely go through the operation again –- but I wouldn’t give the kidney to him. I hate him. If I could I'd take it back and give it someone else."
This isn't the first time story we've read at the intersection of divorce and organ donation -- though the last story was considerably more heartwarming. In August 2012, Massachusetts woman Erica Arsenault donated a kidney to her ex-mother-in-law, Dorothy Wolferseder, nearly 10 years after she split from Wolferseder's son, Scott.
